Movie Friday: The Christmas Gift

This week's movie is a made for TV movie from 1986.  The movie starred John Denver as a New York architect who goes to a beautiful, sleepy Rocky Mountain town just before Christmas to work on a project to transform the quiet town into a major ski resort.  The neat thing about this town is that everyone there believes in Santa Claus.  The movie is about the struggle of the town to fight off the development and how Denver's character finally turns on his boss and helps save the town.

I couldn't find but this one clip on YouTube.  I used to watch this all the time when I was little.  Mom bought it on VHS, and I must have almost worn out the tape.  From what I found last night, it looks like it is now available on DVD.  Who says made for TV movies can't become classics?

Have a great Friday!

  1. Was lucky to see John in a local concert venue here in my local mountains about 20 years ago. His voice... Live... Was the best I ever heard of all the other concerts/groups/singers I went to.

    I'll have to check this movie out!
